Steven Paul Marchand, 47, of Nashua, was charged with criminal threatening and disorderly conduct Thursday after the school resource officer learned he had made a general threat a day earlier, police said. He was being held on $5,000 cash bail.

"Marchand had made a threatening statement directed towards school personnel," Detective Sgt. Patrick Caggiano said. "The statement made by Marchand involved the use of a handgun."

Police said at least one student overheard the threat as Marchand spoke to another teacher. Marchand's car and home were searched, but no weapon was found, Caggiano said.

The school Web site identifies Steven Marchand as a special education teacher.
